Views of Some Senators on Present Crisis raited states Senator Harry Lane of Oregon, during yesterday's debate on Senator Stone's resolution, indorsing President Wilson 'a severance of diplo matic relations with Germany, insisted that there w as a much reason to sustain an American who wishes to walk be twees the trenches on the Kiironesn bat 'tlefields as to sastaio one who wishes to travel in the high seas war zone.

"After leaving Jefferson, the high way for six or seven miles is a 'lis grace," said Mr. Brodie. "The road is soft and in places it is extremely dif ficult to negotiate. Fresh gravel has just been dumped along the highway, making it soft and muddy. I have a light ear, but it -sunk down into tho bot torn of the road in places, scraping the pan and it was all I could do to mutce headway on low gear. "In Clackamas county, whore T live. we have been criticised over the condi-j tion of some of our roads, but wo do not permit such thoroughfares on ourj main traveled highways, as you have here in Marion in the stretches referred to. Farmers who live along this high way and motorists who are compelled to travel it would be justtified in initiat ing recall against county officials who permit suetta condition to exist. Alar ion is a largT1 and wealthy county and is deserving of better roads along the Pa cific highway than your county judge ha.- provided. " Dr. Ross T.

Kirbv1 of Arkansas, who voted against the : adoption of the resolution, said: "I do not believe the time has come in the thistorv of this conntrv when wo shall Bide with Germany or when we shall side with the allies. The time has not come in my opinion when we shouW comit ourselves by the adoption of this resolu tion to any policy that the president may hereafter pursue.
